Jeff Leatham, the celebrated Artistic Director of Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris, is coming home to Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, where his career began. Leatham’s signature floral installations will be featured in the lobby of Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles, along with his very first floral boutique inside the property.
“This is a homecoming for me,” says Leatham. “Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills is where I began my unbelievable journey with flowers that transformed my life. At the same time, the George V has become my second home for 16 years, so sharing these two amazing properties gives me the best of both worlds. Also, I’m incredibly excited to launch my very first floral and design studio at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles, which will allow me to offer more personalised floral displays to the celebrated clientele.”
“Jeff’s style and artistic sensibilities are second to none,” says Michael Newcombe, General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. “He is an international phenomenon whose celebrated designs have made Four Seasons Hotel George V one of the world’s most exquisite hotels. We look forward to featuring his creativity at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles.”
In 2014, the French government bestowed Leatham with one of their most distinguished titles: Chevalier in the Order of Arts and Letters, for his outstanding contribution to the culture of Paris. He has garnered worldwide acclaim for his artistic displays, including a historic installation at the Palace of Versailles and collaborations with top design houses. Bold yet simple, with a unique twist on shape and colour, his floral creations have won the hearts of guests, celebrities, critics and even royalty, and put him on the map as an international tastemaker. He is also the author of three best-selling books, Flowers by Jeff Leatham, Flowers by Design, and Jeff Leatham: Visionary Floral Artist and Design.
